See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
So after 15 yrs of marriage and 2 kids, my husband and I decided to take our First family vacation. Well I booked a cabin in the Smokey Mountains for 3 nights got a great deal, looking forward to some family time away from outside stresses. Well he applied for another job, one that would allow for more home time for him, and not thinking he would get it being a very hard company to get your foot in the door. Well he got the job. I said ok but what about the vacation we booked? Well that has set off a 2 day aguement on me being selfish and nonsupportive. I am looking into cancelling the trip, come to find out I cant because I used I discount, but I did get travel insurance and because the state I live in and the fact both of my kids are in school, we have snow days that will be tacked on to the end of the yr I could use that has an excuse to get my $450 back because the tacked on days run into the days I booked.
I am happy he got this job, and I told him that, but he expects me to do cartwheels and not be upset that I have to give up the one thing I was looking forward to, and the frustration of geting a claim filed so maybe we won't loose the money we already spent.
Now he says he wont take the job, because I not happy and doing cartwheels for him and showing him that this trip did not meant nothing to me and go on with out a care in the world. I told him to take the job and I will get over it in a day or so.
So am I being selfish?
